This practical-minded text helps the radiologist and the clinician understand diffusion-weighted MR imaging. The book's 15 chapters range from basic principles to interpretation of diffusion-weighted MR imaging and specific disease. In this second edition, diffusion tensor imaging (fractional anisotropy, color map and fiber tractography) is covered and a new chapter, on "Diffusion-Weighted Imaging of Scalp and Skull Lesions," is included. The volume is updated by newly added cases accompanied by radiological and pathological images along with the most recent references. It is aimed at all those who are involved in neuroimaging, including: residents, fellows, staff, as well as neurologists and neurosurgeons.Diffusion-weighted MR imaging is widely accepted as a means to identify acute infarction but also to differentiate many other pathologic conditions. Understanding diffusion-weighted imaging is important for radiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons as well as radiology technologists.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:"In an expanded second edition of their clinically important book Diffusion-Weighted MR Imaging of the Brain, Drs. Moritani, Ekholm, and Westesson, along with other contributors, have presented the radiologist with a highly readable and well-illustrated book. . for anyone reading through this book, the applicability of DWI and its derivatives to a wide range of abnormalities becomes apparent. . this book can be confidently recommended to all neuroradiologists, either as part of their personal library or as part of a departmental library." (American Journal of Neuroradiology, September, 2009)
